{Abbotsford Wedding Photograper} Shelley & Jack

This wedding is near and dear to my heart, its about two souls who finally came back to each other and rekindled a love that was always there… it was such a honour photographing this momentous occasion for them and I’m so happy to share them with you!  I’m also so proud of my beautiful mama for doing the flowers, she did an amazing job!

Aldergrove Wedding Photographer { Emilie & Keith }

I’m always amazed with the hearts and stories of the people I get to photograph.  I love getting to hear about their lives and how all these people who attend their wedding is there to support and honour them.  Emilie and Keith are no different, everyone there, close friends and family cheering them on into their new life together.

Its Friday and I have another amazing wedding tomorrow and I can’t help reflect on all of this, sorry to get so deep 😉 but love is something so special and when you find it you should never let go.   I am so grateful to share these photos with you and that Emilie & Keith chose me out of all the photographers out there.  Thank you to all my incredible clients, and everyone else supporting me.     2015-08-07_0002.jpg

Whonnock Lake Wedding Photographer {Jess & Nick}

This wedding was awesome, I have never laughed so hard… my face hurt.  Jess and Nick have such a fun relationship and an amazing connection.  I am so thankful to have been able to photograph such a special day for this family.  I’ve known Jess’s family for a few years now, helping photograph cupcakes from her moms yummy bakery… you may have heard of it?? Tracycakes Bakery Cafe?? The icing is delish, the cupcakes are so tasty and it’s the cutest shop in old Abbotsford.  So when you need a cup of tea and treat…  you know where to go… mmmmmm Tracycakes!  I’ve also taken photos for her lovely sister and attend church with her brother.  So capturing this day perfectly was so important to me!  I love them and I’m excited to share their wedding!

Rosie & Daryl {Chilliwack Wedding Photographer}

Rosie & Daryl’s wedding was gorgeous!  I haven’t been to many daytime weddings but this one was done perfect.  Rosie’s mom did all the food with love and care and everything was decorated with a personal touch.  The reception was out in Ryder Lake near where Rosie grew up so this area was very special, we also did their engagement photos in this area too so I was excited to come back and see the hall.  The day was nothing short of amazing and I am so thankful I was there!  Enjoy!

Christy & Adam {Pitt Meadows Wedding Photographer}

I loved this day, it was beautiful.  The wedding was at Swaneset Bay Resort in Pitt Meadows, this was my first time shooting there and it did not disappoint!   If you know Christy she has everything planned out, right to the minute and this is exactly what she had for her day.  As a photographer I love the accurate timeline and schedule.  I was really excited to explore this new venue for me and get amazing shots for this lovely couple.  I hope you love them as much as I do!!

Jade & Lindsey {Chilliwack Wedding Photography}

This session was so fun and the view was incredible!!  I have been wanting to go to new locations, explore and find gems that is special for my couples and inspirational for me as well.  I’m in love with Chilliwack Lake, its so gorgeous and serene.  I really wanted to do a canoe shoot and so Lindsey and Jade were so kind to find one and haul it to the lake.  They truly made my canoe dreams come true.  ♥

Blessed Beyond Measure {Abbotsford Mother’s Day Photographer}

I am so honoured to be able to share Feather’s story, she is such an inspiration and is amazing in her love for God and her two girls. We had chatted about doing photos and came up with this amazing slideshow telling her story from where she came from to where she is now.  Talking with her I have realized as a mother, how important photos are, and that getting these images with your children matter… looking back I wish I did more photos with my girls as babies and even now stepping in front of the camera more often, and not always being behind it.  I felt like I wanted to do that for Feather, get these images for her and for her girls to cherish for a lifetime.  Painting the pink in her hair was very significant as its next to the image of her girls painting her head when they were little.  She wanted the two side by side, showing where she came from and where she is now… she is strong, courageous and inspirational and I am so thankful to share this story.

In honour of Mother’s Day coming up, I am offering 50% off all the digital image collections for a shoot with moms and their children.   I will be donating the other 50% of the collections to CIBC Run For The Cure since April is cancer awareness month and my family has also been touched by cancer, so it sure hits close to home.  It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, we all deserve to have these images for years to come.  Please contact for further details.

The Loft Hair Salon will also be offering with the photo shoot a blowout and makeup application for $60 donating $5 to Crystal Gala Breast Health Clinic In Abbotsford  (Value $80) ….. so spoil yourself with having your hair and makeup done.
